How are you all doing? I hope that you are all well. If you have been here for a while, you know that I have taken part of a Literature competition in my city. (I have mentioned it in Confessions of a Bookworm #4, and all of you have been nice enough to wish me good luck) Well, I won the first place, and this Saturday I am going to represent my city in my country’s literature competition. Please wish me good luck, because I am extremely nervous.
What is this feature?
This is a new feature, where you can participate, telling us your craziest confessions. Here’s how it works. Write a post about your most eccentric bookworm confession, and put your post link below. I will go around checking your blogs, and choosing the craziest bookworm confessions, and featuring them into our next post.
This feature will help create a bond between bookworms, because at the end if we don’t understand one another, then who is going to understand us? Plus we get to see how crazy we really are, and still call that normal. (haha!)
This week’s confessions:
Jade: I own a Kindle to save money, and for no other reason. I know it sounds a bit strange, but I would much rather pick up a paperback and get the feel of a proper book in my hands. I know Kindles are lighter, and you can read them in the dark, and you can take so many books with you on one device, but apart from the books being cheaper, I really don’t see how any of that compares to the feel and the smell of a real book in your hands!
Lizzie: I hate it when people ask me what I’m reading. I understand they make be truly interested, but I don’t care. You’re interrupting my reading groove and I don’t like it. Let me read in peace. I don’t care if I’m at home or at work. Don’t ask what I’m reading. I guess I don’t like being asked because I read a lot of YA, and people are usually pretty judgmental about the genre.
My own crazy confession:
Actually, unlike Jade, I don’t mind whether I read ebooks, or paperbacks, but I am picky about certain authors. For example, I got an Amazon gift card from my aunt, and I started hunting for books to buy. Unfortunately I can’t buy paperbacks from Albania, as they are not shipped here. I wanted to read Stephen King’s “Doctor Sleep” so badly, and I could buy it online, but I have his books in paperbacks, and I do not want to have ebooks of him. I am currently building my collection of all his books, and I should have them all in paperbacks. Do you understand my struggle now?
Last week’s question was:
If you could time travel, and meet your favorite author (someone who unfortunately isn’t among us), what would you do?
Jade: I would definitely visit Noel Streatfeild, who wrote one of my favorite children’s book ‘Ballet Shoes’, and I would like to ask her all about where she got her inspiration from, and just talk to her about anything and everything!
Lizzie: He’s not my favorite author, but I would like to meet William Shakespeare. I think that he is really interesting and would just like to get to know him. And ask him if HE actually wrote all those plays and poems.
This week’s question:
“In which book would you like to live?”
As much as I love “Dracula” I wouldn’t like to be in that book, because I would get killed by Van Helsing (You honestly thought I would be with the good guys, didn’t you?). As a child, I have always desired to go to Hogwarts, and I shall stand by that words. Hogwarts shall be!
